How the MS Plus Gym and supporters like you are helping Ricky find his strength.

After 47-year-old Shushrik aka Ricky was diagnosed with MS, his taxi driving license was medically cancelled. Despite the challenges of using a wheelchair, and the loss of his job and mobility, Ricky is building a new life on his own terms.

The MS community helped Ricky connect to a support worker who transports him to the old MS Plus Gym at Lidcombe two days a week. There, physiotherapists and trainers - and his newfound friends - are helping him work towards his big goal of walking a whole block independently.

“The gym is such a positive, happy environment,” he says. “It gave me the mental strength to go ahead and live with MS. Thank you for making this possible.”
